Agenda Item
Docket No. 17-1248
PFD Answer filed by Joseph Hugg, former member of the Algiers Charter School Board.
Joseph Hugg received a NOD requesting he file a 2016 Tier 3 PFD. Joseph Hugg submitted an answer stating he is not required to file since he no longer resides in Louisiana; therefore, he is not subject to Louisiana law and he no longer serves on the charter school board.

According to the minutes of the charter school board, Mr. Hugg was still serving and participating in January 2016.

La. R.S. 42:1124.3 requires persons holding a public office who represent a voting district having a population of less than 5,000 and each member of the governing authority or management board of a charter school created pursuant to Chapter 42 of Title 17 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950 to file a financial disclosure statement on or before May 15th of each year during which the person holds office and the year following termination of the holding of such office.
La. R.S. 42:1124.4 of the Code provides that upon discovery of the failure to file, failure to timely file, omission of information or inaccurate information, the Board shall notify the filer by sending him a notice of delinquency by certified mail. The notice of delinquency shall inform the person that the financial statement must be filed, or that the information must be disclosed or accurately disclosed, or that a written answer contesting the allegation of such failure, omission, or inaccuracy must be filed no later than seven (7) business days after receipt of the notice of delinquency.
Advise that Mr. Hugg is required to file a 2015 Tier 3 pfd and failure to file may result in the assessment of late fees.
